Experience the Art of World Travel, Fine Wines and Exceptional Cuisine

Imagine seeing a village, a town, a hamlet through the eyes of those who live there, while you wander the streets of off -the-main-road villages that are not on the top 10 sites that every tourist visits to take a selfie, but are real and thriving everyday life.  Local markets, boutique shops and gourmet restaurants where the locals gather. Have you ever heard of a touring company giving the option to alter the itinerary to suit the needs of the small group? Probably not. But Artistic Gourmet Adventures can do just that because YOU are the most important part of the equation!  

Celebrating our 9th year!

We’ve taken every type of vacation imaginable, but not one measures up to the Artistic Gourmet Adventure hosted by Walter and Kim Eagleton. Kim, an avid researcher, and her husband, an awesome chef, prepared a perfect blend of exploring the intimate villages of France while weaving in historical perspectives. The villages came alive in a way you could close your eyes and see the past unfolding before you. Their warm hospitable nature provides a comforting yet exciting adventure for the novice and historical buff alike. And the food…trust me, it will tickle your palate throughout the entire experience. I give it a 5 out of 5!  Kimberly K. & Stan H.

Thank you, Walter and Kim, for planning an unforgettable experience with AGA!  Your expertise, patience and personal extra touches planned every day, combined to make this one of the most enjoyable travel experience of our lives!  We especially would like to comment on how much we enjoyed the
variety of our daily itineraries:  the delightful gourmet picnics, the interesting and fun wine tastings and boat tour, the epicurean lunches at Le Tasting Room and in the troglodyte cave in Beaumont en Veron, and the outings to the historical sites at Chinon, Fontevraud Abbey, Angers and Chenonceau.  The value of your services was well worth the cost and, in fact, saved us a lot of headaches and money overall!  We would have never been able to stay in a beautiful Chateau and experienced its grandeur and
elegance.  We will always appreciate the care and tenderness you put into our Adventure!  You made our trip to the Loire Valley a dream vacation!
Regards, Jackie and Rusty
